#HamRadio at #MakerFaire and Other Events: One Hams Experience #hamr

National MakerFaire 2016

“What do you do when the lights go out and cell phones don’t work? I’ll demonstrate how you can help your community by providing communications during disasters. And I’ll also show you some of the new Ham stuff!”
